A lone protestor appears to be conducting a campaign against local dog walkers who – it’s alleged – are picking-up from their pooches – but are then leaving the plastic bag and its contents on the pavement.
The campaign appears to be centered on the exclusive Clinton Road/Robinswood Crescent area of Penarth where homes can cost more than a million.
Local residents say they’ve noticed that some dog-walkers are seen to be scooping up dog dirt – but when the bags have been filled and tied-off they are not being taken home to be disposed of but just dumped on grass verges and roadsides when the dog-owners think the coast is clear.
Now however an anti-dog-poo campaigner has taken up the cudgels on behalf of local residents with threats to expose the clandestine dog-poo dumpers.
Local residents say discarded doggie bags – deposited on the pavements – are now having a circular letter attached to them, telling the offenders than they have not only been spotted illegally disposing of their stash of bagged poo – but caught on camera .
The letter is said to warn the dog-poo dumpers that they’ve been filmed on video, in the act, with the implicit threat that the evidence could be used to prosecute them.
The strategy appears to work. A careful tour of the Robinswood Crescent / Clinton Road area failed to locate a single illegally-dumped dog-poo bag in the area.
